Fishy, Fishy

Fishy, fishy in the brook
Daddy caught him with a hook
Mommy fried him in a pan
Baby ate him like a man.

Let me start by saying that I DO NOT like fish (unless it's battered and deep-fried) but my family does. I desperately needed a fish recipe that I could enjoy as well as my family. I think I've hit on it. Success is sweet.
First I covered the bottom of two greased pans with frozen vegetables. You could use anything here that appeals to you.

Then I ground up 1 1/2 cups of almonds and got about 2 1/3 cups of almond flour. I mixed in salt, garlic powder, paprika, etc. Again, use what appeals to you in the amounts you want. I put this mixture on a plate. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it so you have a picture of the empty plate after the fish was breaded. ;)

I then rinsed each fillet off and dipped it in the flour mixture; then layed it on the vegetables.

Next I sprinkled grated cheese over everything and put it in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.

Instead of covering my pans with foil I just put a baking sheet over them.

Beautiful, delicious fish - two words I never thought I would pair with fish. It disappeared in moments, but then again that's the fate of most food around here.
Do you like fish? What is your favourite way to cook it?


  1. What kind of fish was it?
    We don't like fish but want to eat it more so I'll have to try this.

  2. I can't remember, but I think this would be good with any kind. I think the cheese really helps. I can get my children to eat almost anything if I add cheese. :)
